5 Days Of Partying: Made In Brazil's Guide To Carnival 2011

Carnival turned out to be pretty late this year, and clubs are pulling all the stops when it comes to parties, DJs, and international attractions. I won't be traveling this year because of work and a few other commitments, but there is plenty to do even for those who are staying in São Paulo like me (Ms. Kelly Rowland is performing in the city for the first time ever).

If you are headed to Salvador next week, my friends at Vipado have set up a lounge at hotel Che Lagarto to cover the Barra/ Ondina carnival circuit, which this year will feature attractions ranging from Offer Nissim and Isaac Escalante to Daniela Mercury and Ivete Sangalo.

Since I will be in São Paulo this year, I would love it if you guys would email me pictures and videos from the parties in Rio and Floripa (although I would highly recommend leaving your phones at the hotel just in case).
